Amanda and Ryan’s sweet love story starts in Tennessee when they were childhood friends. Eventually Ryan moved away to Florida, they grew up and went their separate ways and then found each other again…on Facebook. Both living in Colorado, they met up and soon knew they were meant to be together. They infused the Southern charm of their childhood into their wedding day with vintage lace, lush garden blooms, and rustic details, many of which Amanda made by hand. Southern weddings are hard to come by in Colorado, but the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield provided a beautiful setting with tall grass, cottonwoods, and an old red barn – perfect for their reception. With a bit of morning rain they even had a little humidity! They danced the evening away with crickets chirping in the background, sipping lemonade and eating barbecue out on the lawn. A perfect relaxed Southern affair! Thanks Blue Rock Photos for sharing!
